It’s just like the fashion conscious to take an English word or term, translate it into French because it sounds cool and then use it to describe a thoroughly English technique.
These white linen tunic dresses for women mostly feature an English based whitework needlework technique named ‘English Embroidery’ but for the sake of the fashion heads looking for white linen tunics or white linen dresses we’ll use the term Broderie Anglaise.

Hot and bothered and needing to wear as little as possible, find yourself in one of the white linen dresses below which encompass eyelet and small holes allowing the cool breeze to get at your skin and at the same time showcasing some fine and well designed Broderie Anglaise needlework.
